What Event Coordinators Are Saying

“I was so excited to have Shelley Hitz come and speak to my audience at “Write. Publish. Prosper.” During her session, I even got an idea for a brand new book that I’d never thought of before and I’ve been a published author for 5 years.

If you have the opportunity to work with Shelley, I would say do whatever you can to get to where she is, listen to her and put everything into action. You’re going to love what Shelley teaches you about becoming an author.”

– Connie Ragen Green, www.ConnieGreen.com

“Shelley Hitz did a presentation for our organization. It was a tremendous presentation and the workshop that followed brought a lot of value to our members.”
– Becky Parker Geist, BAIPA.org President and owner of Pro Audio Voices


David RupertShelley Hitz led a workshop at our recent Writers on the Rock conference. She’s a fantastic speaker, a passionate leader, and a motivational personality. Our first mistake was not giving her enough room, as every seat was taken. Our second mistake was not giving her the microphone for the entire conference.  Some trainers unwittingly highlight inadequacies and as a writer, you feel defeated. Not Shelley. This dynamo encourages possibilities and actually gives you the tools to create new opportunities. Every person that went to her workshop was motivated, inspired, and excited.

` David Rupert, Director, Writers on the Rock


Jim KrukalShelley Hitz always brings the very best tips and strategies for authors. That’s why she’s consistently rated as a must-have speaker in the self-publishing event circle. Our attendees were wow’d by her presentation and we’d be lucky to have her speak again for us.

– Jim F.  Kukral, Founder of the Author Marketing Institute


D'vorah LanskyShelley Hitz is an exceptionally gifted educator and extremely knowledgeable trainer of authors. She has been a speaker at our Annual Book Marketing Conference Online several times and our students rave about her workshops.

Shelley is a positive force in today’s book marketing world and I give her my full endorsement.

– D’vorah Lansky, M.Ed. and Bestselling Author, www.BookMarketingMadeEasy.com
Stphanie_Chandler_Photo.jpeg“Shelley was a presenter for the 2016 Nonfiction Writers Conference.

She had the afternoon session, following the lunch break, which is not an easy one to cover since people are tired. However, she brought enthusiastic energy and was clearly well prepared for her topic. Great job!”

– Stephanie Chandler, Founder & CEO at Nonfiction Authors Association
